fabulous food fête!

I’m so excited to be launching a blog for Yumivore! To celebrate the occasion, and blogs deserve a proper launch, food and wine bloggers came together to create an incredible menu. To make everyone feel welcome, the menu options are all vegetarian; carnivores I assure you these veggie bites will please you as well. There are also many gluten-free options to choose from, and all of these nibbles fall under the yumivore mantra. Shawn Burgert, The Wandering Wino even put together a post on how to select wine just for this occasion! Although hors d’œuvres can often be served before a main course, all the scrumptious bites below are perfect appetizers or can even serve as the food of choice for a soriee. Not to mention that tapas or finger-foods are usually the best part of a meal and most fun! Even though the party is online, do save these amazing appetizers for a party of your own. Ready for a fabulous food fête? It’s time to get the part started! So grab a virtual plate, and enjoy a feast for your eyes!

It’s a fabulous fête! Celebrating the launch of Yumivore, and celebrating the yum in life.

    Thanks Amy! It is fun! And what an awesome menu, it came out great! I love your prosciutto mozzarella skewers you shared as well, though I ended up with a veggie theme. Interested in doing a picnic?
